Default Building height - editing

When creating a map, is there a way to change the building height so that it will persist? I can change one building for example from height 14 to 10 but any time I try and change another the previous one gets overwritten with the original value.

For trees etc. this works properly but not for buildings.

No.

It's been on our to-do list for ages but always gets bumped

What about tunnels?

I'm trying to make a map of Jersey City (don't ask) and I'm wondering what I should do with the likes of the Hudson Tubes and Holland Tunnel. I could make bridges out of them I suppose but that feels kind of weird.

What would it take to cave in a vehicular/subway tunnel? Would you even want to send troops down there in wartime, or is that an even better way to drown them than bridges are?

(Everything I know about tunnels comes from that 1990's Sylvester Stallone film.)

Tunnels would be completely Impossible. Negative elevations are used for water features (that is why mountainside streams plunge into deep caverns).

As for tunnels under water - no, even deeper terrain than a lake, so even more impossible.

So, imagine a world where vehicular tunnels are impossible and they're all bridges instead? I can live with that.

(My grandfather hobo'd to New York City in the 1920's, made some money working there and bought a used car which he then crashed in the Holland Tunnel because he had never before operated anything more complex than a mule. He never went back to New York City.)

Here's a quick preview of a university, some high-income subdivisions and industrial buildings in Union Township, New Jersey, on the southwest corner of my map. It feels a little dense but then it is in one of the most densely-populated parts of America.
